    Happy Holidays,

    Thank you so much for posting this lovely film, I haven’t seen it since it came out.
    There are many movies produced but only a few worth ones time.
    This is one of those rare gems, and even if a person does not like subtitles ( I don’t know anyone like this) it is not a distraction the movie is such a joy: casting, editing, writing, cinematography.

    Again thank you sincerely for sharing this hard to find gem!
